Beauty Close to Home

Lugging cameras, tripods and various bits of impedimenta I’ve spent small fortunes upon travel and accommodation looking for pictures to take in exotic parts of the world. I’ve often been like that angler who thinks all the best fish are just out of reach; but every now and then one discovers that close to home is far enough.

Consider these two pictures:



The upper one is of a lotus blossom. I photographed it where it was growing out of a pool in Kakadu National Park in Australia’s Northern Territory - a long way from my home in New Zealand.

The lower is of Birds of Paradise flowers. They are blossoming in springtime outside my living room window.

Hunting for beauty doesn’t have to be expensive!
